The workbook by is composed of multilayered stories, workshops, and activities created in collaboration with local children in the Kainuu area, Finland. It grew from a series of workshops held in the notably large but threatened areas of old-growth forest in the northern boreal zone. In this workbook, readers can discover the forest, its ecosystem and communities, and investigate their own environment through a series of multisensory activities.
